Nick Williams optioned to Triple-A

Phillies outfielder Nick Williams was optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Williams was once a highly-touted prospect in Philadelphia and hit 17 home runs last season, but he lost his spot in the starting lineup during the offseason as the team added Andrew McCutchen and Bryce Harper in free agency. Rather than letting him sit on the bench in the short term, the team decided to send Williams back down to the minors to receive regular at-bats while activating utility man Scott Kingery.

Nick Williams having epic August

Nick Williams picked up two more singles against the Nationals Wednesday. He now has 20 hits and 10 RBI in the month of August.

Fantasy Impact

Nick Williams is still only 16% owned in Yahoo Leagues; primarily because he doesn't steal bases. But, 17 homers and a .294 average makes him worth a look in deeper leagues.

Nick Williams goes deep in blowout loss

Nick Williams went 1 for 4 in the Phillies' 24-4 blow-out at home to the Mets. His hit was a homer, however. He now has 17 of them on the season to go with a quality .263 batting average and 48 RBIs.

Fantasy Impact

Williams has started to heat up of late with five multi-hit games in his past nine. If you are in need of an outfielder for the rest of the season, you couldn't certainly do worse than Williams.
